Did you ever build your happiness on something that you know you might lose? Did you find something that you thought it helped you a lot and at the end you find out that it was useless? Well, Kino and Juana had had this experience. In this essay, we will be discussing the following question: At the end of The Pearl, are Kino and Juana defeated or triumphant.

Do not misunderstand me here because I am not saying that the pearl was the cause of evil, but I am saying that the everyone wanted to have this pearl so people came to steal it but because Kino was awake, when a person came to steal it he killed him. So if the pearl were gone/did not exist nothing would happen, he would not have to kill a man, or he would have slept
